Title: Whistle - A Workbench for Test Generation using a High Level Design Description
Authors: R. Renous, G.M. Silberman, I. Spillinger
Abstract: We describe WHISTLE, an environment for the development of test patterns for YLSI designs, based on their description by a high-level hardware description language. The tools in WHISTLE are based on the Difference Fault Model (DFM) approach to fault simulation and test generation. These tools include programs for the analysis of blocks in the design library, generation of code for fault simulation, evaluation of the implementation fault coverage for a set oftest patterns, and support for the generation of biased-random test patterns.
